A panel event hosted by the Climate Change & Energy Think Tank Programme about a minimalist perspective with Dr André Stephan, UC Louvain and Ms Poulomi Biswas, WAPCOS Ltd.

Keeping in mind SDG 9, "Innovation & Infrastructure " and SDG 11 "Sustainable communities", this event will discuss the notions of Tiny Houses and how they have become an architectural and social movement that advocates for downsized living spaces, simplifying, and essentially "living with less" i.e., minimalist living, reducing carbon footprint and hence ensuring climate justice through an eco-friendly alternative.
